Happy Holidays to you! ?
Well, where do I start about our journey this year? Starting up Chicks Who Golf in March 2018, after getting a lot of support from our followers on social media previously (with it being just a hobby at the time to promote my own personal golf journey) we started the business journey by introducing few golf workshops for beginners and improvement workshop for already established ladies’ golfer. Now look at us, nearly 1 year down the line…. what have we got ourselves into!
We noticed some obvious pattern with beginner golf workshop being not having many participants, but a lot of ladies signed up for more established golfer workshops. We believe there are still much hesitations from beginner’s golfers to jump on board and try our beginner’s workshop. We think there is a lot to do with educating beginner golfer with understand what golf logistics are, what’s involves and the requirement that follows. We hope to focus on providing more services to our established golfers and provide a lot more workshops cater specifically on improving their golf game and to accelerate their golf handicaps progressions. After all, when you are a golfer, trying to be as best as you can by lowering the handicap is what really gets you as a golfer! Saying that, we will continue to cater small numbers of workshops for complete golf newbies, as it is part of our utmost mission to introduce and educate ladies that curious about golf to get to know golf in a fun and amazing experience setting, rather than – it’s another golf lesson!
We hope to put more awareness to our beginner golfers, to what involved in golf, etc, in hope they will gets the ins and outs of it, can emphasise what’s needed to start golf as a sport that you love and enjoy. It doesn’t have to be time-consuming super expensive. There’s lots of ways to learn, expose and to get to know the game in a much more less pressure way. Not everything has to start at a driving range, not everything has to start at golf workshop. But it must start somewhere. We have promote to cater a VIP Chicks Who Golf FB Group Page, separate from our FB business page where you can subscribe to us annually $199 and get all the services that we provided such as Live Q&A with PGA coaches (monthly session), Live Q&A with Chicks Who Golf every fortnightly for any questions you got regarding golf, lesson videoes and tip for any golf-related golf product or preview and golf discount from our sponsors and collaborators. Lastly, we welcome our member with a golf welcome kit, to start you off with golf on the course if when you ready to embark that journey.
We would like to thank all of our loyal supporters and followers who some have become golfing friends and family throughout the year, that we met at our multiple events, workshops, Meetups, day trips and the golf competition that we had recently to end our year 2018. Without the daily engagements online, constant liking on our posts and new followers on the daily basis, we wouldn’t be here today providing all these services to all the lady golfers out there, who are either curious about the game, that already playing golf or wanted to jump back on playing golf after leaving the game for a while for whatever reason. We hope you will continue to support our missions and business ethos. To anyone that has not yet try any of our event, please give us a try next year. Bring some of your friends and family to join one of our upcoming event as we have lots of pre-plan for next year that is waiting to be published online. The full 12 months events line up for you! You will see it coming up on our Facebook page, Meetup group, websites and other platforms online during this Xmas break.

I am a born and bred Malaysian who has extensive local knowledge of these Asian countries as I’ve lived in Asian for at least the first 2 decades of my life before traveling as an expat for another 2 decades to another 7 other countries globally. My personal experience living in these countries previously coupled with my multicultural experience and multilingual background that I have, (do you know I speak 7 languages?), will make the experience in providing the private hosting services at these countries experience of your lifetime!
